In 1999, while kayaking in the Los Rios region of southern Chile, orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Mary Neal drowned. While cascading down a waterfall, her kayak became pinned at the bottom and she was immediately and completely submerged. Despite the rescue efforts of her companions, Dr. Neal was underwater for too long and, as a result, died.
Gleaned from her book To Heaven and Back, Dr. Neal shares the remarkable story of her life’s spiritual journey and what happened as she moved from life to death to eternal life, and back again.
